" We thank Thee, Lord, 
For all who sprang to answer the great call ; 
For their high courage and self-sacrifice ; 
For their endurance under deadly stress ; 
For all who came back from the Gates of Death ; 
For all who passed to larger life with Thee . . . 
We thank Thee, Lord."

PREFATORY NOTE 

' I 4 HE compilation of the School Roll of Honour was begun by Dr Macdonald, our 
late Rector; but when it was decided, during Session 1916-17, that the work 
should be extended to include details of service a Committee was appointed to collect 
and arrange the material. The membership of this Committee has changed with changes 
in the staff, those who have served on it being Misses Hodge, Lindsay, Lamberton, 
Nicol and Paterson and Mr Duncan. Mr Gifford acted as Convener of the Committee 
and has edited the volume. 

Enquiry circulars were sent out regarding all of military age whose names were 
found on the extant admission registers — these went back twenty years — but many had 
removed from the district and our efforts to trace them were not always successful. We 
hope, however, that the actual omissions are few. 

We thank, cordially, those who answered our later enquiries and furnished, us with 
photographs. In this connection a special tribute of gratitude is due to our Art Masters, 
Mr Robertson and Mr Dickinson, who arranged the photographs and designed the 
plates. 

The General Roll in this volume contains 700 names — a large number indeed when 
it is remembered that usually fully half our pupils are girls. Of these 700, rather more 
than 10 per cent, figure in Roll II. as having earned some mark of distinction, and 107 
of them (Roll III.), over one in seven of the total number serving, gave their lives for 
their King and Country. It is a record of which all connected with the lads themselves 
or with the School have a right to feel proud.
